Teacher Quits; Attacked Wheelchair Bound Usher at Busch Stadium


A teacher at St. Margaret of Scotland School has resigned after being charged with assaulting a Busch Stadium usher who was in a wheelchair, authorities said. Bridget Matarazzi, 25, of the 6500 block of Bradley Avenue, was charged with third-degree assault for allegedly trying to push the usher from his wheelchair when he approached her at a game on Saturday evening to talk to her about her drunkenness, police said.

She had taught social studies and language arts to students in the sixth, seventh and eighth grades for the Catholic school, a statement from the Archdiocese of St. Louis said. Laura McClure, 25, who lives in the 200 block of Green Falls Drive in Fenton, also was involved in the incident Saturday and allegedly repeatedly hit a stadium alcohol compliance manager who also was there.
